Hyderabad: Telangana transport minister Puvvada Ajay Kumar on Thursday informed the state Assembly that the state-owned Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) earned Rs. 62.02 crore through cargo parcel and courier services.

Replying to a question raised by the members during the question hour, Mr. Kumar said the TSRTC has set a target to earn Rs. 75 to 100 crore through cargo parcel and courier services. He said he hoped to achieve the target because the earnings in the last six months had been good.

The minister added that to improve its financial position and achieve self-reliance, the TSRTC had launched cargo parcel and courier services in the state. Claiming that customers are very happy with the services, he said TSRTC is planning to introduce home pick-up and delivery.

At present, TSRTC has 195 cargo vehicles besides RTC buses, Mr. Kumar said and added that it plans to add 50 more cargo transport vehicles in the near future.

Mr. Kumar said TSRTC has cargo parcel and courier services in 177 bus stands and has 790 agents across the state. He said discussions are on with the e-commerce platform Amazon and a Memorandum of Understanding will be signed soon.

He said TSRTC has also introduced cargo parcel and courier service at a few centres in Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Andhra Pradesh. Mr Kumar said TSRTC has tie-ups with government departments like women and child welfare, Telugu Academy, board of intermediate education, Food Corporation of India (FCI), and Singareni to transport their goods.
